Lincoln is moving forward with their technology. The on-board MyLincoln Touch system has all kinds of things that your internet-connected home computer offers: the ability to upload photos, find music, and sync your contacts.
The problem is that many of those things should only be done when you are parked. And they would all be done much easier on an iPad. The $400 cost is not much less than an iPad, and you can use an iPad in far more places than your Touch system.
Park your car, queue up the songs you want, plug your iPad or iPod into your car stereo — and then drive. You don’t need photos or contacts in your car’s computer anyhow.
